The story is well thought out and constructed, the ideas are fresh and interesting, and well worth the cover price alone. Character development is excellent so far, though it's sometimes hard to judge given that this is only the first installment. I was especially impressed with how Astarte the succubus was handled. At first I was afraid "she" would turn out to be just another archetypal seductress, but as it turns out Vance has put a lot of thought into this and all the other very unusual characters. The angel Miral is another example where character shines through and is not cliched.
Stylistically, this is a surprisingly good first work. It is definitely not yet another of those sketchy rush-to-kindle efforts we see so much of these days. It's a well-crafted page-turner which will not disappoint. I can't wait for the next installment. Highly recommended!
As I read through the book, Jean-Luc Matthias led me through the sometimes odd and quite often downright weird happenings in this strange, fascinating and somehow very believable world of angels, minotaurs, HuMans and Others (amongst many). Who else could write a book that includes creatures suffering from self-imposed constipation pains?!! Seriously though, there’s a lot more to this story than that.
Read the book . . . you’ll love it . . . and watch out for the unique and original way that R.Vance asks for a review at the end of this fascinating book!
Fast-forward two hours later and I was at the "to be continued" page and wanted more! Rewind backwards and you'll find me being pulled into a complex story woven with the delicacy of a dentist trying to suture together a broken hard-boiled egg! From the opening, stressful dream where we first meet human Jean-Luc and begin a twisting, heart-rending funny, mind-bending journey that keeps you wondering what's coming next. You might think you've met Medusa, Astartes and Archangel Michael in other books, but nothing like what r.e. vance has in store for you.
If Timothy Leary were able to coherently write what he saw on one of his 1970s "trips" you might get a smidgeon of what Paradise Lot has in store for you. Imagination, fun, a twist on the "old" and a bit of naughty mixed in for good measure and you have a good idea of this book, but not all of it.
Sure, we have to wait for part 2, but who cares? What a great ride Part 1 has been and I look forward to seeing "the storm" when it makes it's full appearance.
Buy this book, set aside a few hours and jump on to the train to "Paradise Lot". You'll be glad when you do!
The world building is another great strength of this story. God has gone and Paradise Lot is now home to an eclectic group of mythical figures that were left behind. The result is a slum where newly mortal angels rub wingtips with minotaurs, gorgons, fairies and the Billy Goats Gruff. Never before have so many ex-immortals struggled so hard with the intricacies of bodily functions and fluids.
This creation is charming and inventive, with plenty of magic to set the imagination on fire. I didn't want it to end, but the next instalment should be out soon. Hallelujah.
